Chicago: W.B. Conkey Company, N.D.
Hardcover. 6 1/4" X 4 1/4". 71pp. No date of publication, but gift inscription dated 1905 to front free endpaper. White cloth over boards, stamped in gilt, with pictorial label to front board. Mild edgewear, soiling, scattered rubbing, and darkening to cloth. Chip to corner of pictorial label. Top edge gilt. Staining to fore-edge. Both hinges tender. Binding remains sound. Black and white frontispiece. Slightly musty smell to pages, else clean and unmarked. An attractive copy of this popular 19th century children's story (though the pictorial label has us thinking perhaps Jessica's first prayer immediately followed her sibling letting go of the cart atop some steep hill). Good. Item #1818
